Fashion illustration is spotlighted at a gallery show in Alhambra
Gallery Nucleus, an art space in Alhambra, will be hosting an exhibition that celebrates the venerated (and often quirky) art of fashion illustration.
Kicking off Saturday, "Line of Style: Fashion Illustration Spanning the Globe" will include pieces from more than 20 international fashion illustrators whose work has appeared in Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle and Nylon, among other publications.
A handful of the artists represented also collaborated with biggie design houses such as Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. A variety of media will be represented — watercolors and ink as well as textiles and digital media.
Featured artists include Dazed & Confused magazine contributor Baiba Ladiga, the late, great movie-poster artist Bob Peak, London artist Coco Pit, L.A. resident Esther Kim, high-fashion collaborator Jarno Kettunen, commercial fashion illustrator Laura Laine and Danish artist Naja Conrad Hansen.
The gallery will host an opening-night soiree for the exhibition from 7 to 10 p.m. that's open to the public and features 50 artworks, runway shows from local designers Connie Lim and Valerj Pobega , and raffle prizes. Find out more about the exhibition and the event at the gallery's website.
